Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

The Further Adventure of Spud the Dog, June 16th 2013


Of course any time spent I spent wallowing around in the field was not going to be a solitary experience. Oh no.

Just don’t drop the ball Spud, don’t drop the ball.

Spud with Buttercups 2-1

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Terrific pictures. I bet that he took no notice of you and did drop the ball! xx

  2. Lovely top photo. Those clouds…

  3. When your field gets mowed I bet the haylage is 50 per cent tennis ball! That’s what it must be when Brabyns Park gets mowed as it’s probably used almost entirely by dog-walkers.

  4. I’m pretty sure Spud is the luckiest dog in all the world.

  5. Great photos of Spud as usual!

    • Now there’s a thing… I recognise that bottle of malt.
      Your posts ‘A Shame about Ray’ and one about a cabbage patch? need to be there. And given the images of a ‘domestic’ between the rich and famous in the media this week, your post about a stockbroker/wife beater would seem timely.

  6. Then there was the heartbreaker about the little gypsy girl who was terrified of men, thanks to the father who raped her on a regular basis. Brilliantly written, though it left me with seriously elevated blood pressure and that pesky incoherent rage…
